The Best of St. Croix
Soup Du Cure 2008
The First Annual Soup Du Cure event took place at the Cheney Bay Beach
Resort. Hot soup on a cool afternoon. This event was sponsored by Sunstroke
Productions and is a benefit for our Juan F. Luis Hospital. Lots of participants
were on hand to dispense many doses of soup to cure what ails you and find
out who will energe the best. The boat parade was supposed to pass nearby.

When everyone had had their fill of soup, the judging began.
The awards were made of glass crafted by Jan Mitchell.
While we waited for the results and the boat parade, we
took in the beautiful scenery and listened to the music.
In the distance we could see the boats leave for Christiansted Harbor.
The night ended with the fireworks display over Christiansted Harbor.
There was a good showing of male chefs.
